Critic Reviews for Lured
The picture is too busy with laughs to worry much about chills, but no one ought to complain about that.
The juxtaposition between [humor] and the grimmer elements such as forensic examinations ... feels super, super weird, but the film remains compelling for plenty of other reasons that can smooth out the jarring switches.
The plot is wonderfully knotty, Lucille Ball is appropriately spunky, and there's a scene-stealing turn by horror heavy George Zucco, atypically cast as a crossword-loving cop.
Audience Reviews for Lured
Having been a huge fan of I Love Lucy, it was intrigue that led me to watch her play a sexy, sassy dancer; which she played quite well. In a not so orginal plot of a serial killer in Scotland Yard, this film was dark, sophisticated, and well-acted. Ball is lured into helping the police find the poet serial killer, who has supposedly been killing off attractive dancers. She meets many strange characters in her journey to find the real killer, such as Karloff, who has a way too short role as a crazy former dress designer. George Sanders was superb as the sophisticated playboy, who must have been the model for the rich, yuppie snobs in later films. Ball falls in love with Sanders, but is he the killer? Great who-done-it that leaves you guessing until the last 15 minutes or so.
odd to say the least, but lucy is full of sass and where else are you going to see her and boris karloff teamed.
